“The Lord Of The Rings” New Zealand Date Change

ALKD, June 14, 2001 – The first instalment in New Line Cinema’s movie trilogy THE LORD OF THE RINGS will now release in cinemas around New Zealand on December 19, 2001.

The launch date for THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING in New Zealand was originally set for December 26, Boxing Day, but will now release simultaneously with the U.S. on December 19, 2001.

Roadshow Film Distributors General Manager, Lisa Hubbard, says
“We are delighted to announce that the New Zealand public will now be among the first audiences in the world to experience THE LORD OF THE RINGS on December 19. The date change is an exciting move for New Zealand movie-goers who will now enjoy this epic cinematic event earlier than anticipated.”

New images from THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy were released via a second theatrical trailer to cinemas last week. The trailer, which debuted on cinema screens in New Zealand on Thursday 7 June, can also be viewed on New Line’s award-winning website www.lordoftherings.net .
